Good plotting software that can be imported and edited from Word?
I am currently using an old software called Kaleidagraph that lets me import a figure into Word, and if I want, I can double-click it in Word to edit it directly without ever having to save the source image. This is a really great feature, but I'd love a more modern piece of software (but not Excel). Any ideas? It'd be great if MATLAB had this feature, but alas...
The other requirement is that it needs to be a vector graphic. Also, the more features (e.g. curve fitting) the better, as I am a computational scientist. My OS is Win 10. Graphpad Prism seems like a decent option, but my institution doesn't provide access, and there's no way I'm paying $100/yr.

Can anyone explain (or provide a resource) for explaining the repetitions needed (or lack thereof) in fluorescence anisotropy titrations?
I've looked through several reviews of fluorescence anisotropy, my focus is with protein-DNA binding, and there seems to be a lot on how to calculate changes in anisotropy, binding, Kd, etc... But nobody seems to talk about how many repeats they do of "each" titration. My PI tried to explain it as that there's 15-20 data points in each titration, and 3-5 repetitions of each data point, so the calculation for error is what is included in the Kaleidagraph results. So you only need the one titration as long as it's "good". However, I haven't been able to find a source to reference/back that up. Any pointers?
